Hi all,

Whilst I often use views for convenience, is there any performance
advantage at all in using a view rather than running the same query
directly on the tables themselves?

Is it quicker to run a full complex query rather than run a much simpler
query on a view? (Hope that makes sense)

Yours Unwhettedly,
Robert John Shepherd.
